Want a SA revolver! Cowboy style.
I am in the market for a revolver. Nothing too spendy. But for the money. Reliable. In the. 357 cal.

It really depends? Do you want a traditional single action revolver? That would be without modern safety features. The older SAA did not have a transfer bar allowing for only 5 loaded chambers during carry.
The modern Ruger revolvers have transfer bars allowing all 6 chambers to be loaded while carrying. The Ruger has high heat treated cylinders which will allow a steady diet of +P level loads.:)

Sounds like you need a Ruger Vaquero.

Seems Ruger is the favorite here. What about the Uberti or pietta in the 1873 style?

I have a Ruger old Vaquero in stainless with 'ivory' grips, you can't go wrong with the vaquero.

Ive been eying those uberti's myself though. Looking at a brass/case colored 4 3/4 inch, beautiful.

Another one for Ruger. If I am not mistaken, the older 3 screw Rugers can be upgraded to the modern safety system, no? This is done by them for free.

I own a Ruger Blackhawk 357 with a 9mm conversion barrel, and a Uberti Stallion chambered in 38. They are totally different guns. As said earlier in this post, it depends on what you're looking for. If you want traditional, the Uberti is the way to go. If you want power and strength and a gun built like a sherman tank, the ruger will be your best friend. I enjoy shooting both.
